    Default ekrunch's 2012 GT500

    Everyone else seems to have a build thread, so I decided to start one as well...

    In January of this 2015, I decided that I needed a new toy. After much research and deliberation, I ended up with a 2012 Shelby GT500. Initially, I told myself that I wasn't going to do anything to the car, but after a summer of driving and hanging out with the CMC crew, that didn't last. (Mods list below the photos)

    So first up, here's some photos of the car right after I got it out of the garage for the first time this year and got it properly cleaned up.






    For those of you who are into road racing, this is what it looks like when you go to Road America on Porsche day.


    This was pre-race, hanging with my friend Kevin and his 911 GT3.

    Looking good. I too went through the mod bug as I just can't help it either. i have completed the list you are getting done on 9/1, the heat exchanger is one of the best, especially in summer months. Let me know if you have any questions on certain things and I will see if I can offer an opinion. Good luck and nice looking car.

    Actually, I do have a question. Thanks for chiming in. What size rear wheel are you running?
